In this Building Spotlight, we highlight a gated community in Windermere, Florida: Chaine du Lac. It’s a 103-acre gated community in Windermere, Florida, located north of Orange County’s Lake Butler. Translated from French as the chain of lakes, Chaine du Lac is known for its beautiful lakefront homes.

ButterflyMX & Chaine du Lac

Chaine du Lac residents have the ultimate convenience of entering the gated community with the ButterflyMX gate intercom. Residents can open the gate without getting out of their cars. They simply tap or swipe to open it on their smartphones.

Since the intercom is cloud-based, residents can open the gate for guests from anywhere in the world through the ButterflyMX mobile app. No guest will ever be locked out of the community as long as the resident sends them a virtual key to open the gate. Also, residents can send secure, single-use delivery passes to food or package couriers. Chaine du Lac residents will never worry about missing a delivery.


Watch How ButterflyMX works:


Even more, ButterflyMX helps prevent traffic congestion during rush hour. There is no need for Chaine du Lac property staff to verify each visitor entering through the gate — a tedious task that can cause long wait times. Instead, the intercom streamlines traffic flow with its ability to verify authorized cars and allow them through immediately.

The gate intercom also protects the gated community from the influx of tourists and travelers that Windermere and the surrounding areas attract. It prevents tailgating — when unauthorized vehicles follow authorized cars so closely that they can pass through the gate while it remains open. ButterflyMX captures video of unauthorized cars as they enter, so property staff can quickly address the unwanted guests and have them vacate the premises.

ButterflyMX adds security, convenience, and sophistication to the luxurious Chaine du Lac community. The ButterflyMX gate intercom makes property access safe and simple for residents, staff, and visitors.
